How to apply
Children from age 2 are eligible for a place in the nursery.
Our nursery is part of the Ark Start programme. Ark Start is one of Ark School's lastest projects and aims to improve the quality of early years education across the country. Ark Oval is lucky to have one of the programme's first two pilot nurseries on our site, which means we have access to many more resources and talented professionals to offer the best start to education.
